Moving home with your pets

Just last year alone, over 1,800,000 people decided to move house with their pets. This means that potentially 228,750 pets could have been caused undue stress from owners who were unaware of their needs when it came to moving home.
Over 1,000 people were interviewed by Battersea Dogs and Cats home. Over half of those approached were concerned about the trauma that moving home would have on their pets. Animal loving Brits put the welfare of their pets even before worries such as forgotten house keys and furniture not arriving.

The younger age group felt that there was little advice available on how to care for pets when moving home. Battersea responded by producing a guide containing valuable moving tips to help young people and pets move house with as little stress as possible.

Careful planning needs to be maintained when moving pets, especially dogs or cats. The guide is also available as a downloadable PDF file and allows owners to deal with all of the areas associated with moving pets to a new address. It covers the significance of micro-chipping and even advises on finding pet kennels and hotels. This preparatory guidebook offers advice from the onset of moving home, right up to the day of the move and beyond, so as pet and owner both experience a change of address with nerves in tact and that special bond still maintained.
